Camp Social Superheroes Canceled for Summer 2020

We learned on Monday, May 11, that Camp for All has made the decision to close their camp for the summer. Because of this closure, we will not be able to offer Camp Social Superheroes this year. Camp for All was completely dedicated to finding a way to have camp this summer, so this news was a shock and surprise to us, but we know if there was any way they could have held camp, they would have done so. We will sorely miss the camp experience with your children this year as we look forward to our summer camp programs as much as the children do! We know this will be sad news for your child and your family and are so sorry to have to make this announcement. We are devastated. This would have been our 11th year at camp.

Those of you who have paid your deposits or paid for camp in full have two options. Please email Mimi Branham mimibranham@carruthcenter.org to let her know how you would like to proceed.

Option 1 If you would like a full refund, we can process that within the next 20–30 days. The refund will go to your credit card used to pay for the services or will be provided via check if you paid via ACH. 

Option 2 – You can roll over your deposit and/or payment to Camp Social Superheroes 2021. Dates for Camp Social Superheroes 2021 are still tentative, but we will communicate them to you as soon as dates are set.   

Camp Social Superheroes offers children a chance to experience a summer camp like so many of their friends in a safe and supportive environment. They get the opportunity to immerse themselves in social learning and practice new social concepts with peers. At camp, they learn independence, gain self-confidence and explore new experiences and activities. They create new friendships, take risks socially, and learn to think differently about the social world. We are despondent that we will not be able to watch your children grow and thrive at camp this year. We want all of you to know that you are in our camp family and that next year’s camp is going to be spectacular! Please reach out to us for any support your child needs as you share this news with them. 

We will continue to work with the Camp for All administration to determine if there are any alternate offerings they may be able to proceed with in the fall (long weekends at camp, camp-to-go on the Parish School campus). We will keep you abreast of any developments if plans begin to form.

Thank you for your loyalty to The Parish School Social Learning programs and camps.

Practice Social Thinking® in a fun camp atmosphere

Camp Social Superheroes is a six-day, overnight camp at Camp for All in Burton, TX, where children ages 8-12 learn and practice Social Thinking®. Campers attend a daily social group that focuses on social learning concepts necessary for success.

Counselors and speech-language pathologists help campers accomplish goals during fun camp activities like:

  • swimming
  • canoeing
  • horseback riding
  • eating meals together
  • hanging out in cabins
  • campfire activities
  • and so much more!

This is an incredible opportunity for campers to make friends and gain real life experience exploring social learning.

Goals include:

  • Blending and sharing space in groups
  • Learning hidden social rules
  • Guessing other people’s thoughts, feelings and motives
  • Understanding friendships
  • Reading cues
  • Solving social problems
  • Connecting with others through conversations and hanging out
